Nevertheless, the body of knowledge is yet fragmented, and the relationships between the students’ positive psychology, emotional indicators, and the perception towards the education system are yet unclear. Accordingly, this study aims to identify the dimensions of positive psychology and emotional indicators of students. Subsequently, the study aims to investigate the impact of emotional indicators on positive psychology as well as the impact of positive psychology on the students’ perception of the educational system. In doing so, the study developed ten following research hypotheses: (1) happiness positively impacts positive psychology; (2) positive emotions positively impacts positive psychology; (3) sad negatively impacts positive psychology; (4) anger positively impacts positive psychology; (5) disgust negatively impacts positive psychology; (6) fear negatively impacts positive psychology; (7) positive mindfulness positively impacts perception towards education; (8) positive purpose positively impacts perception towards education; (9) optimism positively impacts perception towards education, and (10) positive health positively impacts perception towards education.
